Dr. Rivera is part of evaluation team for Recover Alaska

Dr.  Marny Rivera, Justice Center faculty, is part of the evaluation team for Recover Alaska, a statewide effort supported by the Rasmuson Foundation, The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority, Mat-Su Health Foundation, State of Alaska-Department of Health and Social Services, Southcentral Foundation, and other stakeholders to "reduce the harm caused by excessive consumption of alcohol in our state."

Dr. Rivera and Dr. David Tarcy with Alaska Research and Evaluation Services, submitted the winning proposal for the competitive evaluation contract for this project.  The focus of the evaluation is two-fold: 1) to provide constructive, ongoing information to inform and facilitate joint efforts to reduce the harm caused by excessive consumption of alcohol in Alaska, and  2) to assess both the process and outcomes of Recover Alaska at the state level. It is anticipated that this will be a multi-year evaluation project.

Recover Alaska recently launched the campaign, "Day 001 - Voices of Recovery." This video series is airing on television. They are asking for feedback about the series.  Click here to take the survey on Facebook.
